Days Where It’s Not OK
I feel like I always have days like this; days where it’s just not ok.
Nobody talks about this on Social Media, well not any of my friends. It’s all rainbows and lollipops and it is so easy to get disillusioned . Nobody’s life is perfect. Yes, it’s nice to look at pretty, happy things, but sometimes reality is good for us all.
It’s good to refresh our memories that there is no such thing as perfect; it is just an idea.
There are terrible things happening in the world, and unless we saw them on the news, or read about them in the paper, we wouldn’t know about them because we all live in our own bubble.
Well, this is kind of like that. On a way smaller scale, but it’s still the same in theory.
Some days I just feel like running away. Like dropping the kids off at my parents (or my in laws, yes I’m so lucky to have both of them at my finger tips), letting hubby know he’s on duty and then just checking into a hotel for the night.
It’s nobody’s fault that I feel this way – not my kids, not my husband. It’s all me. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with being an adult, and dealing with adult things. And I am totally allowed to feel this way, life isn’t supposed to be easy.
So yesterday, I had a moment where I felt like I couldn’t breathe in my own house. So I told my hubby I was going for a drive. I got an ice cream and went down to the local beach and just sat and breathed. And it was SO refreshing. I needed it.
After posting on Social Media about this little outing, I discovered so many people felt the same way, or had done a similar thing. Took a wee time out. I found out that it’s probably something we should all be doing – taking time for ourselves.
Now that is always easier said than done – but it can just be as simple as going for a drive.
So for a while now, I’ve taken it upon myself to try and show more the real side of my life. The part that is sometimes not happy. I don’t do it all the time, because honestly, I’m not upset or unhappy 24/7. It just happens every now and then, and I’m ok with that.
Let me know below – have you ever felt like escaping and having a wee time out?
